Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare hasn’t particularly had my interest but after playing a weekend of its multiplayer, I’m impressed. Running around as a machine gun armed robo-soldier was a damn good time.
I don’t know if Infinite Warfare dazzles the same way that larger scale shooters like Titanfall 2 or Battlefield 1 do but the game’s fundamentals are so strong that I kept returning to the multiplayer beta for long stretches. It is confident, sticking to a tried and true format that I found incredibly easy to approach.
There’s a lot more customization here too. A crafting system lets you upgrade your favorite guns with extra perks and power ups. You’re able to tightly tailor your loadout for your play style and preferences.
The gameplay is fast, frantic, and even if it doesn’t reinvent much it definitely held my attention. See you in space, gang! Remember to duck if you see me gunning for you.
